CHAR Technologies (CHAR Tech) has announced the “imminent commencement” of a production of 500 tonnes of pelletized biocarbon, which will be shipped to a variety of heavy industrial facilities, including ArcelorMittal sites to fulfill a portion of the company’s previously announced biocarbon offtake agreement.

The company stated that this is an important production milestone in the ongoing commercial upgrades at CHAR Tech’s Thorold facility in Thorold, Ont.

“Pelletization of biocarbon is a critical step in meeting the specifications, including physical properties, of met coal to allow for direct drop in-replacement,” stated Andrew White, CEO of CHAR Tech. “It can also be a tricky step with a number of different operational factors at play to be able to create a pelletized material that can be used in heavy industrial applications, and that can withstand handling, transportation and weather.  We’re looking forward to getting the pelletized biocarbon into the hands of our clients, including ArcelorMittal, over the coming months.”
